Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Fragile Is Coming to North America!!

12170Sometimes you just see a news that you didn’t expect and it makes you happy. Today is such a day.

Fragile: Farewell Ruins of the Moon (Fragile: Sayonara Tsuki no Haiko) is an RPG for the Wii developed by tri-Crescendo and Namco. In the game you walk through the ruins of the world with your trusty flashlight looking for survivors as well as answers as to what happened.

Being such a particular game I wasn’t sure it was going to get picked up. On top of that Namco Bandai stated that they would not bring the game to the U.S. so my hopes were low. But now IGN reports that Xseed Games will localize Fragile and we can expect it this Winter.

Last week SquareEnix teased us with a new countdown site mentioning Bahamut. Some including myself speculated in a Bahamut Lagoon sequel or remake, others opted on a sort of Final Fantasy spin-off of the infamous summon.

The game has since been announced as Blood of Bahamut, en entirely new game which gives only a half answer but either way the teaser for the game was just released so check it out.

Left 4 Dead Delayed

Valve has announced that they have postponed their release date to coincide with the anniversary of Half-Life. The game will come out on November 20 for PC and Xbox 360.
Doug Lombardi mentioned that the game could be ported to the PS3 since the console finally has a bigger number of them in home living rooms.

Harry Pitfall Jr. is Back

One of the most successful games from Activision for the Atari 2600 back then, Pitfall subsequently got some pretty good 2D sequels. The forays into 3D however, are not as fondly remembered.
In any case Pitfall: The Big Adventure has been announced on the Wii. Wait and see as they say.

EA & Take-Two Part…….

The two continue their mating dance but in a more private fashion. EA has stated that they are not going to publicly give any offer and that from now on everything will be negotiated privately once Take-Two is ready to sit down and make a deal. Which probably will not be until after GTA IV is released for the PC this fall.

This Week in RPGs

The numerous RPGs coming out this week will either have you jump for joy or cry at the amount of time you wish you had to play them….or, most likely, both.

  • Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice for the PS3 came out this Monday
  • Ys Book I & II on the Wii VC came out this Monday as well
  • Tales of Vesperia for the Xbox 360 comes out today
  • Infinite Undiscovery for the Xbox 360 is coming out Friday

Battleforge Delayed

Phenomic has changed the release date from End 2008 to a mere 2009. The game is a mix between an online strategy game and a card game, offering 40 maps for up to 12 players to battle on.
